    Last year, Avalanche Software released ‘Disney Infinity’, an open-world video game that brings some of Disney and Pixar’s most popular characters together as toys to fill your virtual and physical toy box.

    ‘Halo’ fans have been longing for a series or film for quite some time now. When I heard about the possibility of a Peter Jackson directed feature I was excited, but that fell flat. Now Steven Spielberg is producing his own ‘Halo’ series which will be produced for Microsoft’s Xbox One next-gen console. Neill Blomkamp (Elysium) may or […]

    My first impression of the gameplay of ‘Destiny’ from Activision and Bungie, which was about a minute and a half in, was that this will be one epic FPS. The graphics are smooth, seamless, and the attention to detail and quality of the imagery is very impressive. Weapon changes are quick, as are reloads (even […]

    Where do you go after 30 officially licensed ‘Alien’ video games? Back to the beginning of course and ‘Alien: Isolation’ looks to do exactly just that by taking its design cues straight out of the original ‘Alien’ film. Isolation isn’t a FPS it’s a FPSH (first person survival horror) with just one super nasty badass […]

    EA have announced they are officially launching an offline mode of ‘SimCity’ in the upcoming update 10. When EA released the ‘SimCity’ reboot in 2013 it was released as an online only game which made absolutely no sense and resulted in a tide of backlash when no one could actually connect to the EA servers […]
